Volunteer Spotlight: Terry Bennett & Roger Anderson

Amy Parsons gives a big shoutout to the media team in this month's Volunteer Spotlight: For our June Volunteer Spotlight, we had TWO wonderful volunteers that we wanted to recognize!

There Are No Comfortable Problems Left to Solve

Kathy Meyer shares the amazing ministry God lead her to because she was willing to say "yes." Share your ministry story at tmumc.org/mystory . Seek and ye shall find. I have heard that all my life.
